UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN SOUTHERN DIVISION MICKEY SOCRATES FERDYNAND, Plaintiff, Case No. 23-cv-12878 Hon. Matthew F. Leitman v. DETROIT POLICE DEPARTMENT, Defendant. __________________________________________________________________/ ORDER DISMISSING PLAINTIFF’S COMPLAINT (ECF No. 1) WITHOUT PREJUDICE On November 9, 2023, Plaintiff Mickey Socrates Ferdynand filed this action against Defendant the Detroit Police Department. (See Compl., ECF No. 1.) When Ferdynand filed his Complaint, he did not pay the required filing fee or submit an application to proceed in forma pauperis. Accordingly, on November 13, 2023, the Court issued a notice to Ferdynand informing him that he had failed to pay the required fee (the “Filing Fee Notice”). (See Filing Fee Notice, ECF No. 2.) The Court directed Ferdynand to either pay the fee or file an application for in forma pauperis status by no later than November 27, 2023. (See id.) It then warned Ferdynand that if he failed to pay the filing fee or file an in forma pauperis application as directed, his “case may be dismissed.” (Id.) 1 As of February 2, 2024, Ferdynand had not responded to the Filing Fee Notice. Nor has he paid the required filing fee or taken any other action to prosecute his case. Accordingly, due to Ferdynand’s failure to comply with the Filing Fee Notice, the Court DISMISSES Ferdynand’s Complaint WITHOUT PREJUDICE. IT IS SO ORDERED. s/Matthew F. Leitman MATTHEW F.
